A Great Conspiracy

Declined to their own rubric,

overreaching, overriding, reclining

in no-brainers,

joint-strike borders;

divining biblical no-fly zones

wrong-headed.

Oppressed by philosophical incest

and snacking on corn syrup passages

of annexed text

 

As leaves fall,

temperatures lower,

belly fat is increased:

padding for pudding.

Democratic credentials

turned obsolete

by evangelicals in Idaho,

in Wyoming, North Dakota,

with bubblegum brains and licorice fingers,

thumbing noses out of habit,

beating breasts like rabid baboons;

red asses raised like flags.

 

Sometimes life is an exhibition game

played by blind quarterbacks,

and millions of birds suicide bomb

the ocean playing field of Boise State

or the dusty floor of Palestine.

 

But after all: trust not your feelings,

trust only what is thought for you

by used car salesmen posing

as god’s henchmen,

selling eight passenger yaks

or cardboard Silverados:

high-ho, indeed!

 

Remember when John Wayne ethnic-cleansed

the crusty Injuns,

and hold aloft your touchdown

paws.
